University Style Guide

Campus Editing

Campus editing is a free service provided by University Communications to any University representative communicating in print or online. We do a light edit of publications and ensure the text is in University Writing Style and the visual elements reflect the Chico State identity, often including suggestions to improve content and design. We also look for any spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors that may occur. 

It is important for all campus publications to communicate both program distinctiveness and institutional cohesion by using consistent language and visual elements. Additionally, EM 02-96 requires that all publications intended for off-campus audiences or wide distribution on campus be reviewed by University Communications.

To request campus editing services, please submit a Campus Editing ticket. Items are edited in the order received and can take up to five business days for turnaround. Please inform us about any deadlines you have and whether you would like more substantial writing or design suggestions. It is recommended that project stakeholders do a final proofreading prior to publication.

For more information or questions, call University Communications at x4143 or email Ashley Gebb, publications editor, at
